"I remember all the great things that she said and the example that she set for so many other women," he added. "I see people almost every day that come up to me and hug me and tell me what an amazing inspiration that she was, as a survivor and a woman who stood up for what she believes in. It's amazing how many people recognized her for that."

On Friday, Billie spent time with her family. She appeared to be in great spirits as she attended the 2017 GLSEN Respect Awards to honor her stepfather Bruce Bozzi, who had wed her father and Carrie's ex, Bryan Lourd, in 2016. Billie and her 10-year-old sister Ava Bozzi also attended.

Bruce, a restaurateur and philanthropist, received the Champion Award for his work as the executive vice president of Palm Restaurant Group, which has programs to fight hunger and support local communities, and for championing LGBTQ issues.

After giving his acceptance speech, he kissed Billie on the cheek and hugged her and Ava, E! News has learned.
